Prepared by Bergmann Associates and SRF Associates in conjunction with the Route 96 Technical Review Committee.

The Route 96 Corridor Management Study looks at the impacts of nodal development patterns versus a sprawling development pattern with a focus on access management issues, improving transit services, incorporating transportation system improvements, and enhancing the overall aesthetic character of the corridor. The final product will recommend a pattern for future growth that protects livability within the study area through sound land use and transportation management practices.

1.0INTRODUCTION
1.1.Project Purpose
The purpose of the Route 96 Corridor Management Study is to help the Town of Ulysses, Townof Ithaca, City of Ithaca, Tompkins County, the Ithaca-Tompkins County TransportationCouncil, and the Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit define an appropriate approach tomanage anticipated growth along the Route 96 corridor from the southern boundary of theVillage of Trumansburg to the intersection of Route 96 and Route 13 in the City of Ithaca. TheStudy is being guided by a Technical Review Committee consisting of representatives from eachof the aforementioned communities and organizations.The study seeks to serve as a guide to define a preferred development pattern for the corridorthat is consistent with the goals and vision for each of the involved communities. The studywill recommend strategies to reduce anticipated traffic-related impacts that may be caused bynew development. The Town of Ulysses, Town of Ithaca and City of Ithaca are looking toupdate their comprehensive plans and have identified the need to analyze this corridor forhousing and business opportunities as well as to mitigate potential associated increases intraffic.The Route 96 Corridor Management Study looks at the impacts of nodal development patternsversus a sprawling development pattern with a focus on access management issues, improvingtransit services, incorporating transportation system improvements, and enhancing the overallaesthetic character of the corridor. The final product will recommend a pattern for futuregrowth that protects livability within the study area through sound land use and transportationmanagement practices.The Corridor Management Study is being developed as a series of four written TechnicalReports, as summarized below:
Technical Report #1 focuses on Existing Conditions within the study area and lays theframework for later projections, analysis, and recommendations. Technical Report #1provides a baseline of information relevant to the corridor from which to learn from, and build on.
Technical Report #2 is the analysis and considerations component of the overall studyand is sub-divided into three main components: traffic projections, traffic impactanalysis, and opportunities and constraints analysis. Each of these sections helps toidentify what opportunities, issues, and obstacles exist with regard to creating a morelivable and desirable corridor.
Technical Report #3 is predominantly the recommendations document associated withthe Study. Technical Report #3 will present recommendations for the Corridor including
